Hip Hop legend Earl “DMX” Simmons passed away on April the 9th in the suites of a heart attack. The rapper was one of the greatest artists in the world in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, and has had five albums on the Billboard charts number one. He turned 50 years old…
UK drill is probably the latest of the music genres to make the middle class housewives choke on their morning tea, waving flags, demanding it to be banned. A not such a wild guess is that the home and school association already have bombarded the politicians in London with demands of harder legislations on what […]
I have always had a tremendous respect for Ice Cube, ever since his N.W.A days. That he’s intelligent have always shined through and I just discovered this interview that never got aired back in 1993 and it’s simply amazing. The ones publish it have given it the title “Ice Cube in 1993 owns a reporter […]
The 10th of November marked the anniversary of Kristallnacht, The Night of Broken Glass, when Nazi Germany carried out a pogrom against Jewish-owned businesses, homes, schools and hospitals at the start of the Holocaust. Aside from the shattered storefronts and buildings, people were burned, and 30,000 Jews were carted off to concentration camps. Of course yesterday also […]
Public Enemy featuring Ice Cube and Big Daddy Kane released the song ”Burn Hollywood Burn” in 1990, calling Hollywood out on its racism. Always letting Black men and women play stereotypical roles.
Many intelligent Black men seemed
To look uncivilized when on the screen
Like, I guess I figure you to play some jigaboo
On the plantation, what else can a nigga do
And Black women in this profession
As for playing a lawyer, out of the question
Though he grew up in Minneapolis, Scott Campbell is a pretty classic New Yorker. He’s 45, living in Brooklyn, and working as an event producer. His company handles the annual World Trade Center 9/11 memorial, installing two lights that shoot into the sky where the Twin Towers once stood. He studied music in college, and […]
“The Revolutionist” was first released under the name J-Love & Ric Nice feat. Guru and under the title “Behold”. Guru then released the track on his fourth studio album outside of Gang Starr as Baldhead Slick & da Click. Now the title was changed to “The Revolutionist”. But the version/mix I love (the first of the YouTube videos here on this page.), is found on a bootleg 12″ under the Gang Starr name and also here called “The Revolutionist”.
9/10 … This is a real coffee table book, 436 pages and a wooping 31x25cm. I sat down with a cup of cooffe and started at the begining. I was imiditlly sucked into this amazing universe and 6 hours later I was still at it. Writting down for me new titles to discover and listening to them on Spotify to see if I wanted to hunt down the vinyl. Another aspect I love about this kind of books is that I feel less crazy for spending so much time and so much money on music. There’s a whole lot of other people out there that are the same.
”Look at all these slave masters, posin’ on yo’ dollar” … On “JU$T,” Run The Jewels deliver some hard hitting lyrics attacking the money system and the injustice that comes with it. Let’s face it, capitalism isn’t the same as democracy. Democracy is everyone equal rights, and that’s not what a capitalist society delivers. If you can afford two lawyers when charged with something, of course you have an advantage compared to someone living in the projects with no money.
9/10 … It’s been a loooooong time since I heard an album that emidettly when it’s over I put it on again and again and again…
“State of the Union” is their new aggressive and simply fantastic track. Produced by DJ Premier, it’s “a fiery return to the frontlines as they take on Donald Trump and his fascist regime,” according to a new press release. It continues: “An unflinching statement about the destruction the current administration has unleashed on the country and its people, ‘State of the Union (STFU)’ speaks truth to power while urging people to fight against racism, injustice and oppression with their vote.”
For me a new discovery, a duo consisting of Seven Shawn (Cousin of K-Def) and John Doe (Cousin of Marley Marl). They had a short career during the mid 1990’s where they released three 12” and also recorded one album that never got released. They came to my attention when I heard the brilliant title track from the groups […]
8/10 … Wu-Tang Clan is my all-time favourite hip hop act and Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon and GZA are all on my top 10 list of favourite rappers…..
Don’t much to say about this one lyricswise, but here are the mighty Redman showing his greatness with more or less just one long flow. This is one of these rare tracks that I can listen to repeat over and over again without getting tired of it. And it was only released on a mixtape back in 2014 …..
On a sunny summerday, or more precise on the 11th of August 1973 at 1520 Sedgwick Ave, South Bronx, New York. DJ Kool (Clive Campbell) Herc’s Back To School Jam spawned the culture that we now know as Hip-Hop. This all started when his younger sister, Cindy Campbell, became inspired to earn extra cash for […]
